CanaryPod: Topple Uncaged S2 EP19

Topple Uncaged S2 EP19


Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!

Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

You’ll get my quick fire round-up of the news in Topple’s Twittering. Then, I’ll be going in on a story or campaign you may have missed, with a very special guest, on Free Flying With… After that, you get to have your say on the week’s talking points in Twitter Chirps Back. And finally, I’ll be bringing you the freshest, most banging political music in Revolutionary Bird Song.

This week I round off Series Two with a look back at some of the campaigns I’ve featured so far. Plus there’s music and chat from a friend of the show and reggae legend Clinton Fearon.

We’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help

Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.

We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.

But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
